felt and bead Scandi elf ornaments

Pull Your-Elves Together

In the past we have used peg dolls to create projects like this one. But this time around we used floral wire to create the body shape for our elf ornaments and then attached wood beads at the ends for the face, hands, and feet. For the hair, we used embroidery floss and then made embroidered outfits for them to wear. 

Our tutorial will walk you through each step of the assembly, but of course you can get as creative as you’d like! For example, you can use the exact art markers we linked to below to color your wood beads. Or you can experiment with different art markers to create other skin tones for your elf ornaments.

Whatever you decide, we’d love to see the elf ornaments you create! Make sure to share photos with us on our Facebook page for members or by tagging #MadeWithLia on Instagram.
